MENIER CHOCOLATE FACTORY, SOUTHWARK STREET.jpg
Built in the 1870s, the former Menier Chocolate Factory, Southwark Street,
Menier Chocolate Factory not only has a very attractive front door, but also two ghost door numbers who seem to have survived by being hidden under a brass plate or something similar.jpg

The Metropolitan Pub, was situated at 60 Southwark Street

Southwark Street was built in the early 1860s by The Metropolitan Board of Works. Presumably this is where the name for the public house came from.
I can’t help thinking the original incarnation was a little bit easier on the eye.
Now called The Southwark Rooms, this venue is the type of place commonly hired out by city workers for drinks and nibbles. Plush inside, brutal on the outside. 2016.

The Pelican was situated at 80 Southwark Street. This pub has now been demolished. Like the load of hops on the horse & cart.
